The Village would like to advise residents that the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) plans to resurface Ogden Avenue from I-294 to Edgewood Avenue beginning Monday, April 26, 2021. The project scope will consist of milling and resurfacing the existing pavement, intermittent sidewalk and curb replacement, and thermoplastic pavement markings. The contractor for the work is K-Five Construction Corporation.
Construction is expected to occur throughout the summer with an anticipated completion date of July 31, 2021 depending on weather. Generally, the contractor will be working between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
To construct the project, Ogden Avenue will be limited to one lane in each direction during various periods of the project. The significance of these lane restrictions is that we anticipate substantial traffic congestion along this roadway and surrounding area especially during the early morning and evening commutes. We recommend that motorists select alternative routes to avoid the anticipated congestion along the roadway. Please drive safely through the area.
Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. We will work with IDOT and the contractor to minimize the inconveniences associated with this project. The result will be an improved roadway that will provide many years of service.
Should you have any questions regarding this project please contact the Illinois Department of Transportation at (847) 705-4300 or the Village of La Grange, Department of Public Works at (708) 579-2328.
